About Buzzards Bay
Buzzards Bay is located in southern Massachusetts along the north western side of the Cape Cod Canal. The tidal salt water bay is bordered on its entire east side by the towns of Upper Cape Cod and on its entire west side by 6 towns in southernmost Massachusetts. Buzzards Bay was established by Congress in 1985 as an "Estuary of National Significance".

The bay is home to many water and land recreational activities. On the water they include sailing and fishing, swimming and sunbathing. On the vast land surrounding Buzzards Bay you can visit State Forests and Reservations and take part in field trips based on nature and environmental studies. There are also numerous hiking and bike trails that lead to the bay from all of the surrounding communities.

Plan to attend or participate in the Buzzards Bay Regatta or just spend a leisurely vacation in and around Buzzards Bay. It will prove to be a memorable and pleasurable experience.

Go Where You’re Not Invited
The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Boston Professional Section presents: Go Where You’re Not Invited   Sponsored by The Mitre Corporation   Presented by   Dr. Marion C. Michaud Topic Overview SWE-Boston invites all members to attend Dr. Marion C. Michaud’s insightful presentation into what it means to be a cyber security engineer. She will share the personal experiences that led her to her current role, from the female STEM perspective. Dr. Michaud is the Technical Director of the Cyber Security Technical Center in the Center for National Security at The MITRE Corporation. She has overseen teams whose work literally advanced the state of the art ranging from threat intelligence analysis to new security engineering approaches to creating a collection of cyber defense standards now widely adopted by industry. Dr. Michaud’s success as a leader stems from her ability to foster innovation and thought leadership. While able to recognize and grow outstanding technical talent, she also inspires the high levels of engagement and creative problem-solving needed to stay on the cutting edge of cyber security. Agenda 5:30 – 6:00 Appetizers & Networking 6:00 – 6:30 Dinner 6:30 – 6:45 MITRE & SWE Introduction 6:45 – 7:45 Main Presentation and Q&A 7:45 – 8:00 Wrap Up Dinner will be provided.

Marion’s experience as executive Director of MITRE’s Cyber Security Division for the prior eight years made her the natural choice to lead this team of over 420 cyber security professionals. The Center helps protect essential systems across the spectrum of federal agencies, including the Air Force, Army, Navy, Combatant Commands, DISA, NRO, DHS, FAA, IRS, VA, and many other agencies. In her previous roles at MITRE, she was responsible for information security engineering, leading efforts that ranged from research and acquisition to operational support. Her work has included security test and evaluation, certification and accreditation, security process improvement, architectures, cross-domain solutions, mission assurance engineering, risk assessments, forensic research, technology transition and deployment, and evaluating impact on policy development. Her technical work has included projects such as parallel computing and simulation and modeling. Prior to joining MITRE, Dr. Michaud assisted the Air Force in developing mission-needs modeling and introduced new technology to support the budgeting process. She served as an Assistant Professor in the Mathematics and Computer Science Departments at Siena College, in Loudonville, New York, where she also served as the Mathematics Department Head. Dr. Michaud received her Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from Brown University in 1980, her M.S. in Applied Mathematics from Brown University in 1975, and her B.S. in Mathematics and Education from Syracuse University in 1974.

Author Event: Nadia Hohn "Malaika's Costume" Story Time
It’s Carnival time. The first Carnival since Malaika’s mother moved to Canada to find a good job and provide for Malaika and her grandmother. Her mother promised she would send money for a costume, but when the money doesn’t arrive, will Malaika still be able to dance in the parade? Disappointed and upset at her grandmother’s hand-me-down costume, Malaika leaves the house, running into Ms. Chin, the tailor, who offers Malaika a bag of scrap fabric. With her grandmother’s help, Malaika creates a patchwork rainbow peacock costume, and dances proudly in the parade. A heartwarming story about family, community and the celebration of Carnival, Nadia Hohn’s warm and colloquial language and Irene Luxbacher’s vibrant collage-style illustrations make this a strikingly original picture book. Nadia Hohn B.A. (Hon.), B.Ed. M.Ed. is an author, musician, diversity in children's books advocate, reviewer, and educator. The manuscript of Malaika’s Costume, her first picture book, won the Helen Isobel Sissons Canadian Children’s Story Award in 2014. She is also the author of two non-fiction titles, Music and Media Studies, part of the Sankofa series, which won the Moonbeam Children’s Book Award for Multicultural Non-Fiction. She was born and lives in Toronto, Canada where she teaches kindergarten, French, and music at an elementary school.

Hollywood Babble-On: Kevin Smith & Ralph Garman
Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman take a twisted look at showbiz news and bite the Hollywood hand that feeds them. Sometimes, they feel bad and give Hollywood a tetanus shot and some Neosporin, but, even then, they usually just turn around and bite Hollywood's other hand. They can't help it. It's their nature. It's like that “scorpion and frog” story. But, deep down, they're just two nice East Coast boys… who happen to have a heavy dependence on drugs and alcohol, respectively.

with JD McPherson
What a difference three years makes. Lucius went from being the five-piece Rolling Stone claimed was the "Best Band you've never heard of" to the group you can't get enough of. Fronted by the sleek and compelling look-alike twosome of Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig and backed by their counterpart bandmates Dan Molad, Pete Lalish and Andy Burri, Lucius spent more than 250 days on the road in the past year. They've sold out shows big and small, headlined all over the US and Europe, played slots at Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival, Lollapalooza, End of The Road, Reading and Leeds Festivals and more and shared the stage with a variety of musicians including Roger Waters, Jack White, Mavis Staples, Jeff Tweedy, Sara Bareilles, The Head and the Heart, Tegan and Sara and David Byrne.The band's uphill ascent began when Jess and Holly crossed paths while at college in Boston; more than 10 years ago, Lucius started making music and hasn't stopped since. Along the way they've become NPR darlings, grist for Britain's prestigious Guardian and favorites of the Nobel-prize winning New York Times columnist Paul Krugman. Since the critically acclaimed release of their 2013 debut LP Wildewoman they have built a stunningly loyal following, and share an intimate bond with their fans. It's not uncommon to see Lucius doppelgngers in the crowd.Sitting with Jess and Holly to discuss the band's sonically-grand and emotionally-honest sophomore release Good Grief, the first thing that strikes you when you meet the frontwomen of Lucius is how fine-boned and delicate they both are. But even more striking is that they don't actually look alike once you see them offstage. Their builds are markedly different: Jess is curvy, with a generous mouth and eyes that tilt up at the corners; Holly is willowy and angular, serious and with the pale complexion that conjures up the image of a Nordic princess. But despite the six-inch disparity in their height on stage you could swear they were identical. Of course it helps that they always dress exactly alike, their hair is the same style and shade right now a warm curry red and they sing in a strong unison, doubling their high, clear voices and creating a third sound that is as unnerving as it is lovely, like two mirrors, creating an infinite number of reflections that reveal as much as they obscure. "We wanted to feel like we were transforming ourselves and going into a different head space while performing," Jess says. "In some way I think what we do is like a fantasy. We wanted to take people along with us for a ride. We wanted to present that visually so when you look at us you're seeing what you're hearing." What you're hearing (and seeing) when Lucius takes the stage are two voices becoming one. The band's distinctive play on duality showcases Jess and Holly's powerful voices at the center bolstered and surrounded by the mathematically precise drumming of Dan with the graceful, chiming guitars of Pete and Andy. Together the quintet create a sound the New Yorker calls "seemingly impossible with flawless grace that brings delicate beauty to even the most bombastic moments."The recordings on Lucius' second studio album Good Grief mirror the band's distinguishing on-stage configuration. One shared figure 8 mic serves as an anchor for conversation between the band's lead duo, which has resulted in the 11 raw and often heart wrenching songs you hear on the album. Among these is the explosive track "Gone Insane," which gives a direct look into one of the few arguments between Jess and Holly. "Some songs really feel like an expulsion of emotions, beyond your control," Holly says. "The writing of 'Gone Insane' was based on the feeling after one of those loose cannon type of heated fights, with helplessness and rage hitting you in alternating waves.""But maybe the perfect description of this song comes in the recording process," Jess adds. "Holly and I have seen maybe three arguments in the past 12 years. But perhaps the biggest of all, came the day we were to record this song. Emotions were running high, and at some point, Holly blew up at me. In shock, I yelled back and we both stormed off."This was a prime example of our partnership because a short while later she returned, we apologized, hugged and immediately went to record. It was just the two of us in the dark. There was no plan for vocal arrangement, we wanted to use the intensity of the moment and go for it. The 'falling off' part at the end of the song was completely organic, the two of us screaming into the same mic, losing it, together, in song form, as the lyrics suggest. ""It was definitely one of those magic studio moments you can't quite explain," Holly finishes. A majority of the tracks on Good Grief fall in line with the overarching theme of discovering the goodness that can come from any hardship. The album proves to be a release for the band both physically and emotionally, after experiencing the highs and lows of being on the road for almost two years, the band moved to Los Angeles from Brooklyn where the album was recorded during the spring and early summer of 2015 at Grammy-winning engineer and producer Shawn Everett's studio.However, a few songs including the first single "Born Again Teen" became what Holly describes as something like "the antithesis of the other things that we were working on, to give ourselves some relief."From the first swooping, synthy intro of "Something About You" to the alarm-clock menace of "What We Have (To Change)," there's a sense that these expertly wrought pop songs are full of emotional depth. They veer from sassy, soul-drenched vocals to glitzy rhythmic pop to songs that call up the charm and crushed innocence of '60s girl groups, but in the end there is no comparison to the dark secrets Jess and Holly convey when they put their two voices together. "There are songs here that are deeply personal and emotional, and in a way we've exposed ourselves to reveal parts that are fragile, maybe even a little broken, but not destroyed," Jess says. "There's certainly a little bit of humor, and there's also a lot of truth and sadness."The lyrics of Good Grief read like personal journal entries because the friendship and writing partnership established between the band's cofounders has given the women of Lucius an outlet to express their unusually parallel experiences. "I always say Holly's been the healthiest and longest relationship I've ever had," Jess says. That relationship has clearly blossomed musically into a many-faceted, enthralling sound and image sure to resonate deeply with music lovers everywhere. March 2016 brings the release of Good Grief, the band's highly anticipated sophomore effort.

Though frequent collaborators and dear friends, the pair never managed to record a studio album together, but they did make history in 1975 when they sold out 16 shows at Broadway's Uris Theatre. Now see them sing together again with a little help from two bright stars in Ella & Frank: The Concert, at Lexington's Cary Memorial Hall. American Idol finalist Siobhan Magnus and crooner Mark Mahar re-create that special vocal chemistry for a new generation. With a full band behind them, Magnus and Mahar perform an evening of classics as they were meant to be performed, with skill, verve and true American style.

Eileen Ivers Connecting The Roots and Michael Londra’s Celtic Fire
Legendary fiddler Eileen Ivers’ new show Connecting The Roots takes the audience on a musical journey exploring the rich roots of American music and dance. The concert showcases how Irish music and dance have integrated with various roots music of North America to create one of the richest cross-pollinations of folk music styles in the world. It brings to light the influences of the Celtic tradition on roots music ... bluegrass, French Canadian, Cajun and Appalachian ... and how it journeyed on to become a fundamental ingredient of the American country music tradition. Michale Londra is the voice of Riverdance while on Broadway. He was the Best Irish Tenor at the 2012 Irish Music Awards and was nominated for two Emmy awards. His song “Danny Boy” has over 6.5 million views on YouTube. Michael Londra was the Special Guest to the 50th Anniversary of JFK’s visit to Ireland.
